As a hybrid text, Of Cycles and Disturbances is blend of creative and theoretical writing that explores the complex and sometimes destructive relationship humans have with nonhuman environments. While writing towards an apprenticeship of the land, my creative and theoretical texts explore: language and story memory and things remembered connection to place and a rooted sense of place the relationship between home and the wild the negative effects of resource extraction and processing on nonhuman environments and my complicated relationship with resource extraction. By combining lined poetry, prose poems, experiential creative non-fiction, photographs and a theoretical framework, my thesis surrounds and works towards an understanding of nature and my own involvement in the cycles and disturbances of the wild. The forces that work to transform and destroy nature and the ways in which poetry can work against those forces as both a form of activism and a didactic tool is the focus of this project. --Leaf ii.
